I basically got a brewer's best as a gift so I decided to make it so my friends and I would have something to just down if we wanted it during hockey games. It is a wit style beer. Due to I was just making this as a beer to drink I set the PSI on the keg to 25 and let it sit in the garage, which is at 45F, for a week. I have had a few glasses, probably 12, with the regulator set at 5 psi. They are still coming out all foamy. The beer has been carbed for about a week. Once it gets through the 8 feet of beer tube all that comes out is foam. Am I making a mistake?
Thanks for any help!
Left my dang hose outside too long - froze solid! I guess if I buy a new hose, I can brew this weekend... Still below freezing here north of Atlanta!
Brewing in the attached garage. Not too bad toady. It has warmed up to the low 20s. With the warming we also are have some pretty good snow showers.Same.. I'll be getting a batch underway in the garage this afternoon, the wind is howling and another 2-4" expected starting late tonight.
No, I let the beer naturally drop clear, then hop, then crash. My beers usually finish and clear around 14 days from pitch.So you cold crash to clear before hops and then again to drop the hops?Bumping this to clarify...my beer has been in primary for 2 weeks. I'm going to dump the hops straight into the primary while cold crashing. Does this sound right?
Personally I like to dry hop for 5-7 days once the beer has dropped clear, then I toss in the hops. After the 5-7 days I then cold crash for 2-3 days. IME the aroma and flavor is better when dry hopping at ambient temp (60F).
